Welcome to Three Arch Bay! As the old saying goes, 'location, location, location!' Enjoy relaxed Laguna Beach living in Lower Three Arch Bay, situated on the ocean-side of PCH, at one of the top-rated private beaches in California and the U.S., rated a “Grade A” by the Heal the Bay Annual Report. No need for a golf cart in this rental home; the steps to this beautiful private beach are right around the corner.
This original beach house, built in the late ‘20s, was one of the first homes constructed in Three Arch Bay. Remodeled and added to in the 90's, it's a beautiful stucco and brick home with old-Laguna cottage feel. The home features raised wood beam ceilings, a mahogany wrap-around bar and a Spanish tile outdoor dining area with ocean views. If you’re coming with the kids, this home is next door to the park and playground of Three Arch Bay, complete with basketball court and playscape. Our personal croquet set and lazy afternoons come included with the house!
The beach stairs are five houses from our doorstep. Just cruise through the park and you’re halfway there. Included with the rental are beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, a collection of sand toys to make a large sand castle village, and a surfboard if you're up for it. Speaking of surf, there are several legendary surf breaks and skimboarding beaches within 2 miles of Three Arch Bay.
During the summer months, a free public open-air trolley service is available to downtown Laguna at the entrance to Three Arch Bay (also walking distance), with departures and arrivals all day long. All visitors will enjoy our list of Laguna local destinations, including restaurants, shopping, state parks, and the best galleries in town. Pageant of The Masters and Festival of the Arts, as well as Sawdust Festival and many other events keep this beach-town entertaining, all year round.

If you are seeking a beautiful beach vacation but want to avoid the crowds, Three Arch Bay beach is one of only three private beaches in Laguna, and undoubtedly the most beautiful. Privacy and ample room on the sand are yours. On a recent visit to the beach on a beautiful March afternoon, there were 6 people on the beach...it's never crowded!

Born and raised in Laguna Beach, we've got the scoop on all of the local haunts and must-see destinations in town. Some are old, some are new and we've frequented them all. We split our time between Laguna Beach and Austin, TX and are offering this home as a vacation rental for the first time ever.
Wyatt and Kristin purchased this house in 1929
This home has been in the family and passed down over four generations. It is authentic Laguna Beach with modern updates and the neighborhood is beyond lovely. There are few places in the world like Three Arch Bay. Come find out why!
If you love combing for shells, watching pods of dolphins swim by and a very short walk to the beach, this home is situated in the perfect location of Three Arch Bay.
We rented this place with another family (7 total) last month, and it was amazing. We had plenty of room, and the house is just the perfect setting. Perched on a hill overlooking the tennis court and community park, the home is surrounded by gardens and a cool patio with a small firepit. You can literally walk down to the private beach in about 3 minutes - tucked away down a side street is the staircase, which winds down the hill and overlooks the beach and all of the rock formations and cliffs.
The house itself is smartly appointed with nice furniture and decorations, and although it is an older home which you might think is a "bungalow", it has way more space than you would think because of the room below (we called it "surfer's quarters") and my 13 year old loved it!
Laguna is an amazing place and we went shopping downtown (which is about a 10 minute drive to the north), had several great meals in and around Laguna, and had many relaxing days working (can't help but work a little on vacation!) with the gentle ocean breeze wafting through the patio doors. We went out on a whale-watching excursion and saw plenty of whales, sea lions and dolphins! You can also hike along the trails in the canyons around town, rent a mountain bike or just get out and explore.
I would highly recommend this property for a laid-back adventure. We will most definitely be doing this one again just as soon as we can!
We very much enjoyed our extended stay in Three Arch Bay- by far the most beautiful beach and only a 2 minute walk down the stairs from the house. My favorite time of the day.... an early morning walk on the private beach with not a soul in sight. The home is warm, welcoming and well-appointed, with exquisite touches throughout. The succulent garden is beautiful- the owner let us take home a few clippings. The home has a gourmet professional kitchen with fully-stocked pantry of olive oils and vinegars, and anything we needed to bake or cook. It was a nice unexpected touch- for a long stay like this it sure did make it feel like home. Bedrooms with new linens, pillows, and great mattresses! We slept very well here. We are planning to return next spring.
My family rented this lovely home for six weeks this last summer. We could not have been happier!! Kristen and Wyatt have thought of everything to make this a fantastic place to stay. From the gourmet kitchen, to the comfortable beds, and the beautiful ocean view deck!! There wasn't anything we were wanting while we were there.... We could not have been happier there for our entire stay. The home will be one that we will visit time and time again if they will let us. We are a family of four but had our children bring friends with us. The home sleeps 8 comfortably!! We could not have been more comfortable or enjoyed our stay any more...There is no place like Three Arch Bay and the home is easy walking to the steps down to the private beach...PERFECT!!
We have the best in-home massage therapist in Orange County, and a team of babysitters in the neighborhood if you need an adult-night out!
